TTAC Video of the Week: This Dealer Will Fight for You

When I worked as a service writer, an upset customer threatened to kick my ass right then and there in the service drive. If I recall correctly, he was upset because there was a language barrier and the price for the service came in higher than he'd expected.

Black Rifle Coffee Teams With BJ Baldwin, Creates Better Film Than Hollywood

Corporate tie-ups with successful gearheads aren’t new – witness any number of NASCAR sponsorships, for example – but those partnerships often just extend to a few photos of the star holding up examples of the product du jour and mugging for the camera.

That’s why it’s always a good day when the mashup results in a ten-minute film that's arguably better than some of the tripe trotted out by Hollywood.

TTAC Video of the Week: Holy IndyCar Crashes, Batman!

As I've stated on these pages before, I am a semi-casual racing fan. Meaning I watch NASCAR and IndyCar and F1 and IMSA here and there, I know most of the big-name drivers, and I understand the basic rules and such for each series, but I don't watch every race or know every driver. I do tend to watch more races this time of year since baseball hasn't yet revved up (oddly matched pun fully intended).

TTAC Video of the Week: Don't Go Showing Off

We all know that when you try to show off, you often end up in a ditch.

It's a lesson many of us learn as kids -- we try to do a trick on our bikes or take a turn too fast, and we get a dose of humble pie. Yet, we don't fully learn, because we get our driver's license and do the same dumb stuff while driving a car.

Video Time: Where One Can Peek Into the Car Ads of the 1990s

I’ve always enjoyed the healthy dose of nostalgia which accompanies old advertisements. This is doubly so when any of them are car-related. The style, the jingles, pricing, long-dead nameplates – it’s all there. And through an accidental YouTube discovery, hundreds are in a single location.

  • TheEndlessEnigma Gruesome Newsom has spoken, you are now required to bow and do his bidding.
  • TheEndlessEnigma $7900 is asking a bit much, they are asking about $2500 more than is appropriate for a private party sale. This is a $5500ish car at best.
  • Tassos While the Fit is an intelligent design and while I have owned and liked Hondas for decades, asking for $8k, even in worthless 2023 devalued Idiot Joe Biden dollars, for n 11 year old, SUB-civic Subcompact, with 120k miles and who knows what hidden issues, is way too damned much.And as always, you should ask YOURSELF, if you even think bidding on such a tiny, unsafe at any speed (NO passive safety, NO active safety) vehicle:"HOW MUCH IS MY OWN LIFE WORTH"?Or, if you had the bright idea to buy this POS for your college bound kid or grandkid,"HOW MUCH IS his or her LIFE WORTH"?
